Let's All Go Solar In Aliso Viejo, CA

Interested in having solar panels installed in your home in Aliso Viejo, California? Well then congratulations for taking what will be a step in the right direction for you for so many reasons. Want to save money? Going solar will do that. Want to help protect the environment? Going solar will do that as well. There are a lot of good reasons to go solar, which is a good thing because making this type of decision is a pretty big commitment. How exactly will going solar help you to save money? Well electric rates are going up and will keep going up. So far this year electric rates are averaging about 4% higher than they were last year.  While electric rates are going to keep going up, when you finance or lease a solar power system your payments will remain the same.

The bottom line here is that going solar can save you thousands of dollars.  It's important to keep that in mind because if you decide to finance your solar power system you will be taking on a good amount of debt. But since that debt will offset your normal electric bill it won't really impact your standard of living in a negative way. In fact in most cases you are going to have a monthly payment to the solar power company than your normal electric bill would be. So not only will you be locking in your electricity rates, you will be doing so while also saving money on a monthly basis. After learning about the financial benefits of going solar you are probably ready to move forward. The following is the list of the 4 steps in the process that you will have to take to get your new solar system up and running.

1. Get A Solar System Quote

The first thing you have to do if you want to have a solar power system installed in your home in Aliso Viejo is to call different solar companies to get a quote. In fact there's a good chance that you have already been contacted by a solar power company since many companies out there are reaching out to try to find potentially new customers. Rule number one when looking at solar power companies is to take your time and make the right decision for yourself. Don't let anyone pressure you into anything. If a company gets pushy then simply tell them you are waiting on other quotes before you make a final decision. If anything doing this may in fact get companies to work harder to lower your costs. Make sure that you also compare quotes regarding leasing or financing your solar power system. There are benefits to both options, so talking to solar power companies about them can give you a better understanding of the route you want to go.

2. Figuring Out Your Energy Needs

Once you have chosen the solar company you want to go with the next step in the process will be figuring out what your energy needs are going to be. A lot of people don't realize that you can have a solar system installed that will provide all of your energy needs, even at night. This works through net metering where excess power generated by your solar system will feed back into the grid. The electric company measures this power and gives you credit. Then when you need electricity from the grid these credits will be used to pay for the power you use. So any solar power company you choose is going to want to take a look at your electric bill. If they don't then this is a red flag that probably indicates you need to be looking at a different solar power company.

3. Figure Out The Size Of Your Solar System

After analyzing your electric bill and figuring out your needs during different parts of the year, the next step will be to design your solar power system. Each solar system is going to be a little bit different with factors such as your power usage, amount of sunlight, and available roof space being considered during the design process. Solar panels are not cheap so you definitely don't want to be paying for more than you need. On the other hand you also don't want to have a solar system that fails to meet your needs. The good news is that any reputable solar power company employs experts that can figure all of this out for you. It may take a while before installation can be done, but during this waiting period you can rest assured that time is being spent figuring out the best way to build a solar power system for your house.

The only inconvenience you will have to deal with is having your power cut off for a short period of time while your system is being connected to the grid. Then that's really all there is to it. You just sit back, relax, and let the installers do their job. Then before you know it you will have the benefits of a solar power system.
